Professional Development
11.) 2013 Part-Time Faculty Institute
5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m. March 7 Delphi Center, Ekstrom Library
Beyond disciplinary knowledge, classroom techniques and teaching strategies, instructors struggle with their craft, both professionally and personally. “Busyness” can weigh down instructors to the point that burn-out pushes otherwise great teachers out of the profession. Renewal of our spirit and affirmation of our identity as teachers is vital to a healthy sense of self-worth as well as serving as a well-spring for improved teaching. Join us for “Practicing What We Teach" with Roy Fuller.
Additional Information: Register here. For additional information, contact Roy Fuller, 852-0663.
